Flourescent Marble Race

Kristoffer Thurøe


Let's co-create one long crazy construction for a track of flourescent marble race during The Borderland. We will build a basic structure and then anyone can develop and re-design the track with loops, hoops, bends and burrows.

Full description of concept

We want to co-create a marble track that is a mix between a Marble Run, a Lauf Der Dinge and a marble machine. The track will be placed down the side of one of the steep and mainroads and will be active all week. We will make a basic luminated structure for the track, and then anyone can co-create, develop and re-design it during the week - either with us during the day or all by themselves during the night. The track will be build by a mix of materials we bring from home, what people will bring to Borderland and what we will find in nature. It will be luminated during the night with UV LEDs and the marbles will be fluorescent. We would love to make this with all of you and can see us selfs use the whole week on this and hope that others will be bit by the race, the construction and the tinkering as well.

Team and plan

A theatre technician, a prop maker and a project manager - maybe more crew from our camp Shadow Bunnies.
We will build from sunday/monday until we get bored or let others take over

Moop plan (matter out of place)

We will bring building material from home and will clean both it and what others bring to re-create the structure during the week

How can other borderlings cocreate with you?

We will build a basic structure and some fancy parts our selfs but the track is always open for others to re-create and develop. We hope that it will grow during the week, not only when we build on it our selfs and invite others to join, but also in the night time or when we chill. The track will always be open for anyone to race on.

What is this?

Congratulations! You've stumbled upon something special. Borderland is a participatory festival that takes place in Boesdal, Denmark. It's a fully participatory event where everything is created by the participants themselves, with out any spectators.


  • Do you need electricity from the grid? Basic 220V for LEDs

  • Will there be light? LED strips and UV LED strips for the flourescent marbles

  • Will anything burn? Hopefully not

  • What is your audio footprint? Marbles running down the hill and people having fun

  • Forces of nature Everything will be close to the ground and if it breakes, we will build new structures from the remains

  • Next random dream
